Happy Valentine'​s Day From CrazyPrett​yLady

Ahhhhhh, it's that time of the year! The time of year where everyone is in the mood for love! It's Valentine's Day!

Today is the day when lovers all around this crazy world make those special dinner reservations, buy those pretty flowers and watch owners of greeting card companies plan their huge vacation after seeing their bonus from Valentine's Day card sales.

However, it is also that time of the year where #f*cklove become the #1 hashtag for many without a Valentine. Singles take to twitter or facebook to denounce love, express their feelings on how "love stinks" and wear black all day as they're in mourning.

For me, as someone who recently got traded to play on the singles' team, today is a day filled with happiness and love because I've found the best Valentine of all - myself.

I make the best Valentine because I can cook, I workout, I keep the toilet seat down AND I'm f*cking hot. :-)

On a serious note, everyone should celebrate Valentine's day. Couples should celebrate Valentine's Day. Divorcees should celebrate Valentine's Day. Singles should, everyone should. Today shouldn't be a day of mourning. Everyone should use today to recognize the people who are in their lives and the people who are finally out. Don't use today to weep over an ex - their called "an ex" because you "ex"perienced that relationship and finally realized  what you want and don't want for yourself.

So, enjoy Valentine's Day everyone!

And to all my single friends out there, remember the best thing to do to get over one guy......is to replace him with a new one!

Alright, alright, alriiiiiiiight :-)

Crazy Eye Candy: Love After War...

Robin Thicke.

That man. OOOOOO LAWD!!! *begins to think of thoughts that are  too hot to share on this blog*

Though I think that singer Robin Thicke and his wife actress Paula Patton are perfect together,  I have to admit, Robin Thicke is a sexy man. There is something delicious about a man who can connect with his inner feelings, who can express his love for his woman and who can wear a damn suit!

Check out this video by Robin Thicke and if you start to imagine yourself to be Paula Patton in this video, trust me, you're not the only one.

*wipes sweat*

Sunday Tea: Live Fast, Die Fearless

Dictionary Definition: Fear (noun) - a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid*

The four-letter word "fear" has so much power than anyone can imagine. Many individuals' lives are stagnant due to the fear of falling in love, the fear of growth or the fear of being honest with oneself. Though our pride might sugar-coat things, fear can divert someone off the road to success.

For me, I strongly dislike (not hate....strongly dislike) to admit my fears. I would rather hide my emotions before I would ever let an individual know what can make me shake in my boots. However, if we as human beings pride ourselves to be authentic, why should we be afraid.... of being afraid?

Nothing is guranteed in this world and a happy ending isn't always promised but never trying gurantees us a boring life. Facing your fears are the spicy moments the universe likes to throw at us to help us become stronger. The difference between a success leader and a boring follower is that one person decided to conquer their fears and take a chance.

So, going into this week, I challenge all of my Crazy folks to live fearlessly and take a f*cking chance! Profess your love for someone, talk to your boss about that promotion, wear that tight dress to the club, conquer your fears and just do it! Do not think about the negative outcome.You only live once. I'm not saying you should do illegal things....I'm saying that you should just live.

Stay Crazy :-)

Crazy Question: Should Social Media Affect Your Career???

Hello Everyone!

Picture From:Facebookfrenzy's Blog

I know you all have heard this classic story at your place of employment: An employee tweets about how their boss is being a witch. The company finds out about the tweet and before Friday, the employee is being escorted out of the building.

Or, you probably have heard of this story: An employee decides to post pictures from a fun,crazy night in the club on Facebook. Those pictures of them grabbing their BFF's butt as well as them making out with that random dude at the bar gets into the wrong hands and before you know it, the Human Resource department calls that employee into their office.

Throughout my young life, I have heard MANY horror stories about how social media led to the downfall of some one's career. Some companies have even created departments that focus solely on monitoring the social media activity of the company, including what their workers are posting, tweeting, instagraming, foursquaring,etc. (I bet you didn't know that, huh? Makes you think twice about making that picture of you in pum pum shorts your default pic?)

However, is it right for companies to go to this extreme? Social media is suppose to be a platform to say what you want, when you want. So, should our careers be affected by our freedom of booty poppin' on a handstand? Should we be afraid of expressing ourselves on our own twitter page? Should men not be the mayor of Sue's Revendous on Four Square because they might loose their job?

I can argue for and against this practice but what do you think? Should your latest social media status jeopardize your employment status?

Sunday Tea: You Can't Always Get What You Want......You Get What You Need

Good Morning Boys and Girls!

In life, we are always taught to strive for the impossible. In college, people would stay up until the wee hours of the morning studying in order to achieve an A on a test. In our career, people will work hard in order to achieve great success.  In our relationships, people work to maintain the strength of their romance in order to have a long lasting love.

In everything that we do, we put 110% into it because we know that the outcome will be great but what happens when you put your all into something and the results aren't what you want?

I consider myself to be a modified perfectionist. I always want everything to work out the way that I want it to. I give my all into everything that I do but sometimes, the results aren't that great. Why does that happen, you ask? Is it a waste of time to put your effort into things?

My answer is simple: "What we might want in our lives might not be what we need in our lives." The Universe has a funny way of placing us into certain situations that we never saw coming. Students fail an exam.  People lose their jobs. Relationships break up. Friends lose contact with each other. All these situations might occur when we least expect it but in order for change and growth to occur, something drastic needs to happen. We are not "wasting our time" in life when bad things happen, it is the universe way of showing us to take a different path in our to gain want we truly deserve.

So, I challenge all of you out there in Crazy Land to never be discourage when things don't go your way. Everything happens for a reason so take the lesson that you learn from the situation, compare and contrast and move forward.

Namaste :-)
